1  Re: Questions About Hairstyles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by lucastheboo on: May 05, 2008 08:12:20 PM
So I've been needing a hair cut for a while now, I have wavy hair but I usually flat iron it in the morning before work, I'm looking for a style that is kinda idk emo/punk/indie something cool and quazi unique, I work at Wal-Mart and we can't have unnatural colors so I'll probably not be dying it unless I get a really good suggestion I'm just not sure what to do about it. I like the long part in the front, but its looking kinda lame right now.

btw this is it just combed no product or straightening.

Someone please come up with something awesome for it.

2  Macro Challenge-Dandelion Clock in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by lucastheboo on: April 24, 2008 10:53:54 PM
First time I've ever done a macro shot and this is the only one that didn't turn out very blurry. I used a Kodak Z710 and I cropped the picture, I was very pleased at how the shot turned out.

3  Raspberry Lemonade Easter Cake. Pic Heavy. in Dessert by lucastheboo on: March 23, 2008 06:17:52 PM
So I looked all over the internet but I couldn't find a Raspberry Lemonade Cake that sounded good, so I did the crafty thing and made up a recipe.

First I'll show you what I used to make the cake.

The Ingredients were:
1 Box Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic White Cake Mix
3 Large Brown Eggs
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1 1/3 Cups Water
1 Cup Whole Milk
16 Ounce Box of Raspberry Flavored Jello
16 Ounce Box of Instant Lemon Flavored Jello Pudding
16 Ounce Tub of Cool Whip Topping
8 Ounce Tub of Cool Whip Topping
Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue Food Coloring
Crisco-Pilsbury Flour No-Stick Cooking Spray

The Tools I used were:
Lots of Mixing Bowls
2 9 inch Teflon Cake Pans
Measuring Cups
Measuring Spoons
Wire Cooling Racks
A Cake Decorating Bag With Multiple Tips (For the First Time)
Teflon Safe Spatula

Mix the cake mix as directed, pour 1/4 of mixed cake batter into a separate bowl and reserve. In the bowl with 3/4 mixed cake batter, mix in Lemon pudding mix and 1 cup of milk. Pour Lemon cake batter into 9 inch pans. Mix 1/3 packet of Raspberry Jello with the 1/4 bowl of cake batter, pour Raspberry batter over Lemon Batter in 9 inch pans. Using a Teflon safe spatula swirl the Raspberry and Lemon batter around to create a marbled effect.

The left is swirled the right is not.

Bake at 350F for 28-38 minutes or until cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

The pudding makes the cake a bit more dense than a normal cake mix would be and it tends to crack, I'll give you a tip for decorating further down.

Leave cake in pans and let cool on a wire cooling rack for about an hour, or until completely cool. Once cake has cooled remove the cake from the pans.

Mix the rest of the Raspberry Jello powder with the 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip, scoop Raspberry Cool Whip into your cake decorating bag and use a large starburst tip.

Squeeze a ring of Raspberry Cool Whip around the top of the bottom cake, and fill in the ring with the rest of the Raspberry Cool Whip to create your middle layer, then put the cake for the top layer on upside down so that it will be smooth and flat on top.

Using the 16oz. tub of Cool Whip and a spatula, cover the entire layer cake, so that you will have a blank canvas.

Now you can mix small amounts of Cool Whip with food coloring to put in your cake decorating bag, choose a tip that you like and the sky is the limit, but as a precaution Cool Whip is a hard thing to work with, but it makes for a light alternative for frosting which I needed for this cake.

As you can see my cake is Easter themed, I was running low on white Cool Whip by the end of it so I didn't get to do as much as I wanted but it tasted great and turned out looking pretty cute and very Homemade, lol.

What I took home.

Hope you Enjoy it, and comments are welcomed.

4  I need a curtain! in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by lucastheboo on: February 25, 2008 12:28:24 PM
I moved into an apartment and the light above the sink is a fluorescent light that has no cover and is horrible when standing in front of it. I bought fabric to make a curtain out of, but have no clue how to make a curtain or how to affix it to the cabinet. So what I need help with is, a pattern for a curtain and some advice on how to attach it.

This is the light.

This is the fabric.

5  Photograph Wreath Thing. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by lucastheboo on: January 03, 2008 10:08:23 PM
My boyfriend and I, as well as my best friend, moved into an apartment together, and while we've decorated quite abit (having two "Mo's" in the house, it has to have some flare.) We were seriously lacking wall decor. Well we all work at Wal-Mart and he works in the photo-lab and he brought some pictures home that were the normal picture size 4x6 I believe, anywho they were solid black except the white border. He said he wanted to make something for the wall out of them. We have a quasi Asian theme going on in the living room so he wanted it to match. I cam home today to find this.

He put all the pictures into a wreath like shape and began taping them to one another and then we nailed it to the wall with two nails, then he found the Chinese character for home on the internet, after he sketched the shape onto the back of the picture he cut it out with an X-acto knife then tape it to a piece of card stock and cut it to size and we nailed it in the center of the wreathy thing. I really like it alot, and thought I would share his creativity with you all.

6  Re: Worrisome Winifred in Completed Projects by lucastheboo on: March 04, 2007 01:10:41 AM

The Calico kitty's name is Snickerdoodle. The brownish-red cat looked alot like Santa's Little Helper, the dog from the Simpson's, so his name is Santa's Little Accident. Worrisome Winifred, of course, a little relieved that a few kittys came home. The grey cat is based off of a cat I saw at the local shelter, she only had one ear and I really wanted her but we didn't have extra room, luckily it is a no-kill shelter, anyway her name is Ear-nella (which was what I wanted to name the real cat). Lastly is a Kitler, a cat which looks like Hitler, it is based upon the picture below.

More Hitlerish cat here:  http://www.catsthatlooklikehitler.com/

I'll update again when I make more cats for Winifred, thanks for the comments, and thanks Diane B. my pictures turned out better because I found the close-up thingy on my camera and I cut the flash off.
